Perfectly Imperfect with Christine and Regina

#54 - Men: What They're REALLY Thinking (and not telling you)

Episode Summary

There has always been a clear distinction in which men and women handle their feelings. For women, it’s okay to openly cry and talk about their feelings but for men, they are taught to suppress any emotion that isn’t anger or happiness. This stark contrast in gender expectations causes a whole lotta pain and assumptions on both sides and ends with us never truly understanding one another. This week, Christine’s brother Michael and fiancé Jack join in on the conversation about *feelings*. What were the expectations they faced as young boys that forced them to suppress their emotions? What were the consequences of that as they grew into men? How did they finally learn how to feel their feels and then be brave enough to express them outwardly? Listen in! It’s a good one, full of laughs, tears, and emotions!
